1978 Gibson RD Artist bass
The RD Artist pickups and associated electronics are unique to the RD Artist. The bridge, however, is the Gibson three-point adjustable combination bridge, first used in 1973.
The pickups are series V humbuckers with expansion/compression and bright mode controlled by the switch at the bridge end of the guitar.
Note the three-piece maple body, with defined patterning in places.
